Something somewhat fashionable would be appreciated. Go!
Will Dockers get by?
Pros: not super expensive, they wear well, they come in a variety of fits & colors.
Cons: they qualify as "tan pants". In fact, they defined the genre...
Or, if by "jeans", they mean "traditional blue jeans", then maybe think about Carhartt pants. The B11 canvas work pants are incredibly comfortable... So comfortable, in fact, that I haven't worn "blue jeans" in close to a decade.
Avoid tan pants. Levis makes some jean-like slacks with surprisingly modern cuts these days. I have them in grey and black, and wear them to work often. Go to a nice department store and have a look around.
Exception to tan pants rule: this guy.
Nice chinos, or khakis, just get nice colors, I say avoid the orphaned suit pant look that so many guys wear, the only time I wear suit pants is with the suit.
Also I think any sort of jean-like slacks looks un-pro, the pockets look weird when you tuck in a shirt, avoid.
Nothing wrong with tan pants, as long as it's a nice tan, Dockers generally do no make nice tans IMO, but one thing is for sure- on a hot summer day the guy wearing tan pants and a white shirt to work looks a hell of a lot nicer than the guy wearing jeans.
I tend to be Spartan about clothes, so black Dockers are the typical attire. I also stick to dark colors only so I only have to buy black socks, black shoes, black belts, etc.
Dickies slacks wear well, don't need ironing, several colors to choose from.
Tan pants. It can double as stage attire!
you can to the right place..
Eddie Bauer Classic Fit Khaki's. I wear them to work on days I don't have meetings. They look the part and are extremely comfortable.
Flat front. Avoid pleats if at all possible.
The Haggar Life Khakis are pretty good, and they come in a few non-tan shades.
What are the others wearing?
Dockers or Lee's khakis. Dockers come in several different fits. Usually find them on sale or can buy direct online.
They still do that in the modern work place? Guess I have been out for a while.
Take that one step further: Do not wear pleats. Ever. Never.
Another thought: If you're buying slacks (not khakis), most of what's out there these days is made of microfiber -- which is fancy polyester, rather than wool, because it's cheaper than wool. But the problem with microfibre is if your in a dry climate, like Las Vegas, they will statically stick to your legs and pick up carpet lint. So spend the extra bucks and buy all wool slacks. They look better anyway, they travel better, and last longer.
Tutu and a snorkel.
My suggestion holds regardless of office environment. Pleats are not appropriate anywhere.
Hit the Goodwill.
